Allison Shorter, owner of Shorter Designs, was born and raised in Winston-Salem and graduated from N.C. State University, where she received a degree in psychology.
Upon graduation from N.C. State, Allison worked with college students for six years. One of the many things she did was help them balance their time, finances, energy, and relationships. She spent time with students individually, helping them set goals and take appropriate steps to meet those goals. Over the years, Allison helped countless students handle different challenges, maximize their time, and be more prepared to face the future.
After leaving this role, Allison wanted to learn more about “professional organizers” and what they do. Working at Organized Living in Durham, NC, Allison logged over 400 hours designing closets and working with customers to tailor closet designs that balanced storage needs, budget, and personal style. Now, as an organizer, she continue to design closets, as well as efficient living and work spaces.
Two things Allison have always enjoyed are being organized and spending one-on-one time with people. Now as a professional organizer, she is able to blend her interests with her background in psychology. She finds it extremely rewarding to work with individuals who want to improve their quality of life by making organizational and environmental changes!
Allison has been married since 1997 to her supportive and wonderful husband, Kevin Shorter. They met at N.C. State University and were in full-time ministry together for several years. Kevin and Allison have lived and traveled throughout Argentina, Turkey, Europe, and the U.S. And their newest adventure is parenthood, where they have 2 daughters, Rachel and Elizabeth.
Kevin Shorter is a former staff of Campus Crusade for Christ serving stateside and internationally in the Middle East. After leaving staff, Kevin served a year on staff at a local church writing training material, designing a new member class, and discipling several members.
Kevin currently holds an MBA from Wake Forest University focusing on marketing and entrepreneurship. He works for a Bridgetree, Inc., an information technology company, which specializes in information services, analytics, web programming and logistic services.
Kevin resides in Redding, CA with his wife, Allison, and two daughters, Rachel and Elizabeth. He has recently author a book to help churches and ministries make their websites more effective. Go here to find out more on his book Church Search.
